Gateway Announces Recall of Foam Rubber Toy Cows

Toy Cows RecalledSAN DIEGO, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Gateway Inc. is voluntarily recalling about 1 million foam rubber toy cows. Small pieces of these foam rubber cows can tear away, posing a serious choking hazard to young children.

Although there have been no reports of injuries, Gateway has received three reports of small pieces of these cows tearing away.

These cows are white with black spots. They are about 4.5 inches long and 3 inches high. "Gateway" is written in green on the cows' backs.

Gateway stores distributed the cows from September 1997 through September 1999 as a give-away with a computer purchase. A small number were sold separately for about $4.

Consumers should either throw these cows away immediately or take them to any Gateway Country store location for exchange for another Gateway-brand item of comparable value. For more information, call Gateway toll-free at (877) 206-4889 anytime or go to the recall web site at
